marcum lx-5 quick question

8 posts in this topic

What is the difference between the lx-5's with 2000 watts compared to the new ones with 2500 watts. Is it that much of an advantage to get a new one? I can get a deal on a 2007 lx-5 but don't want to buy it if the new ones are a lot better.

I think you would be happy with either one. If you can get a good deal on the 2000W one, I'd probably do it.

I guess it would also depend on how much of a price difference.

The new LX-5's have 500 watts more, back lit SFL and NBT, Patent Pending "Auto Tune" which is like having a sonar engineer right inside your unit. From checking out the built in Demo between this year and last year LX-5's the screen is definitely enhanced more. Can't wait to run mine on the ice.

CNY Tim I have been using my new LX-5 for a few weeks now and man what a difference between it and my old LX-3! Screen is way easier to read and I like the color scheme. I can read the smallest gills hangin on the bottom and its easier to read in the sun. Im glad I switched.

Maybe I better just put up the cash and get the new one so I don't second guess myself all winter.

    • Have not been around here much but always enjoy the "Turkey Talk" Count me in. Hunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Archery for both.  
    • I put my feeders out 1st of May usually. Such a neat bird. We usually only have a few so they are territorial here. Fun to watch one guard a feeder and then zip down when another one comes. Maybe they get along in bigger numbers?   Up north at daughters inlaws on a lake the neighbors have 4 feeders under a big pine and usually a bunch of hummers. Saw about 15 one time and they got along fine. Pretty neat. 
    •   So that's the evidence you have about illegal wiretaps that apparently nobody else has besides Trump?  That Obama's a bad (or sick) guy?   Try harder.   
    • Yup, everytime i call you or del out to put up the truth about your own bodies, you dodge. Wouldn't that be the ultimate proof that your way of addressing personal health and wellness is more effective in preventing and healing?  I think you guys have an idea from what you've been told and not what you bring yourself to learn and you never put anything to use so, who are you really to share your opinion? A couple of blowhards, thats who.
    • What crankbaits do you like for the 7-9ft range?   Looking for something that casts/have action like a DT-10, but doesn't run quite as deep. I have some SK series 4, but they have the wider wobble which sometimes I don't want. The SK series 3's just don't cast that far, especially in a wind. Same with some others, they always seem to be smaller in this range.   Thanks. 
    •     Ok, I think I need to clarify my statement. My belief is they would be better off in letting ObamaCare collapse on it's own than passing "Obamacare part 2." My first choice would be to just repeal it. Then I suppose a debate can happen  
    •   Ryan's bill is a direct taxpayer subsidy to the healthcare industry, via the insurance companies.  I think we have enough experience with subsidies to know that the outcome generally isn't good with that.   Probably the best thing to do is just repeal the ACA, and hand it back to the healthcare industry.  But that isn't likely to happen because there is just too much money involved.   Like any other slippery slope, the sledding is pretty good going downhill - not so easy going back up...
